Our achy-breaky-hearts; The best songs have been written about heartaches and breaks, and rightfully so, there is so much expansion in words and melodies that can send chills down or up your spine.
Heartbreaks and aches are a natural part of our emotional existence. We have them with everybody, friends, lovers, children, and even strangers. Even if you think you don’t care, or think you do, you do! Our hearts will get broken, we are natural born lovers.
Heartbreaks/aches take us to new levels of understanding about ourselves and others if we let them. They can raise our consciousness up to a new level of understanding our connections, or we can make it takes us down a dark path of blame, shame, guilt, and fear. Love is what we ultimately came here for (at least that is what I believe) it really is about how we connect and disconnect with people, places and things.
Love is the opening door
Love is what we came here for
No-one could offer you more
Love is the key we must turn
Truth is the flame we must burn
Freedom the lesson we must learn
Lyrics- Lani Hall Love song, click on the links and listen to its beauty.
HEARTBREAK is unpreventable; the natural outcome of caring for people and things over which we have no control…
Heartbreak begins the moment we are asked to let go but cannot, in other words, it colors and inhabits and magnifies each and every day; heartbreak is not a visitation, but a path that human beings follow through even the most average life. Heartbreak is an indication of our sincerity: in a love relationship, in a life’s work, in trying to learn a musical instrument, in the attempt to shape a better more generous self. Heartbreak is the beautifully helpless side of love and affection and is [an] essence and emblem of care… Heartbreak has its own way of inhabiting time and its own beautiful and trying patience in coming and going.
And yet while heartbreak has this immense spiritual value, and even an evolutionarily adaptive one, we still treat it like a problem to be solved rather than like the psychoemotional growth-spurt that it is. Whyte writes:
Heartbreak is how we mature; yet we use the word heartbreak as if it only occurs when things have gone wrong: an unrequited love, a broken friendship, and a shattered dream… But heartbreak may be the very essence of being human, of being on the journey from here to there, and of coming to care deeply for what we find along the way.
There is almost no path a human being can follow that does not lead to heartbreak. ~David Whyte on true meaning of friendship and heartache

Yes, Only love so great can make us feel this way, and with this realization, we know our “greatest heartache” was actually the guiding light that we needed to find the way to the love of our life, ourselves. Thanks for reading.
Heartbreak is honestly one of the worst feelings, whether that be with relationships or friendships, but it is true that it helps us to grow into better people.
